Can't Resist: Tiago Splitter's Recovery
« on: June 19, 2016, 08:01:18 AM »

Former SA Spur, current Atlanta Hawk, had one hip done by Dr Su.

I feel like such a slacker!

 :) Try being a bilateral and doing it. But not at 4 months...... about 14, and about half his age........ I feel like a real old fella pack horse style. Test would be put a bungee around his feet then frog jump now that would test out his strength... Seems good faster recovery when your that young. Yep those resurfaced hips can take a hiding.

He had to retire--here's a link:http://www.espn.com/nba/story/_/id/22505571/tiago-splitter-former-spurs-champion-retires-nba. He came back and played in the NBA after resurfacing, but his other hip needed surgery, so given his age and the recuperation period, he decided to hang it up. Still an inspiring story.
